It’s never a great time to get divorced, but there probably isn’t a worse time for an NBA player than in the middle of a playoff run.
That’s why Tim Duncan is trying to delay his divorce proceedings while he attempts to capture his fifth ring with the San Antonio Spurs, according to TMZ. Duncan’s wife filed for divorce back in March.
The way that excuse is worded in Bexar County, Texas, legal documents is that Duncan’s employment “is currently making extraordinary demands on him and hopefully will continue to make those demands for the next 30 or so days.” Surprisingly, it doesn’t say “Go Spurs” at the end of that sentence.
Duncan and his wife signed a prenuptial agreement before they got married in 2001. Legal documents state that Duncan wants that prenup enforced.
The Spurs are currently two games up on the Memphis Grizzlies in the conference finals. The Spurs and Grizzlies will face off in Game 3 on Saturday night.
